Gabala defeated Inter at home in the 2nd leg of the Topaz Premier League. Our head coach Yuri Semin introduced the squad with only one change as nominal forward Victor Mendy replaced midfielder Ibrahima Niasse. 

The red-back half of the pitch started better gaining the lead with quick attacks. But their earlier efforts were off target on many occasions. Then the guests appeared to be taking benefits from some spaces and opened the scoring in the 20th minute. 

Gabala worked harder to regain the momentum after the goal but they failed to level in the half.

Yuri Semin”s motivation during the break seemed worked out right a few minutes after the second part started when Mendy set up penalty against Inter that was shot home by Leonardo da Silva – 1:1. 

Later on, captain Vladimir Levin scored our second with a header after perfect pass by Amit Guluzadeh.

It is worth to remember that, Levin was transferred to Gabala from Inter this summer. Another Inter transfer punishing his team Inter other than Levin is Ibrahima Niasse kicking home right 8 minutes after being introduced by Semin – 3:1. 

In the closing stage, Inter”s captain Vagif Javadov earned their second goal but the matters were settled well before. And the result might have left Inter coach Kakhaber Tskhadadze drooling for the 3:2 in our favour. With the result, Gabala moved up on the 3rd tier at the league table.
